A penetrating survey of contemporary art from Puerto Rico and the diaspora created since Hurricane Maria
Centering on works made by nearly twenty multigenerational artists from Puerto Rico and the diaspora, this volume responds to numerous contemporary issues affecting Puerto Rico, including Hurricane Maria and its devastation, as well as austerity measures, political unrest, and the COVID-19 pandemic. Included are works across mediums, including painting, video, installation art, performance, and poetry, made between 2017 and 2022. No existe un mundo poshuracán demonstrates ways that these artists have forged a path through adversity, searching for a collective awakening grounded in resistance that disrupts the infrastructure of the colonial design.
